Synopsis for "The Oz Effect, Part One"
In an A.R.G.U.S. base Metallo is tortured and dismantled. Mr Oz appears and removes Metallo's kryptonite heart apparently killing him. Mr Oz then states that tomorrow Superman will see humanity "for the sick, tragic, perverted, and twisted organism it is." The next day see sees Superman rescuing a shipment of smallpox vaccine which he delivers to Logamba. In the crowd people with Mr. Oz's symbol ask why Maggie is trying to save the man who stole the vaccine.
Mr Oz then presents 'options' at many different locations around the globe. Superman goes from location to location trying to stave off disaster but in some cases is too late. Superman is confronted by Mr Oz in Logamba where the village to which he delivered the vaccine has been wiped out by guerrillas. Mr Oz then teleports them both to Superman's Fortress of Solitude where Mr. Oz claims he is Jor-El.
- No special notes.
- The last natural case of smallpox in our world was 26 October 1977
